No. 10 Florida State completes series sweep against Virgina Tech

  Florida State has swept 13 of its past 17 conference opponents dating back to April 6, 2013.

BLACKSBURG, Va. -- No. 10 Florida State (26-7, 8-1 ACC) scored four runs in the sixth and added one in the seventh to take a 5-2 victory against Virginia Tech (22-6, 3-5 ACC) on Sunday.

“Another outstanding job by this team to battle and fight from behind and not give up until the end,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “We had excellent production from the bottom of our lineup and Lacey pitched another great game for us. Great to get the series sweep on the road and I’m really proud of how we competed this weekend.”

The Seminoles had a few scoring chances in the early going, but the Hokies plated the first run of the game in the bottom of the fourth as a single and a walk allowed Lauren Gaskill to give VT a 1-0 lead with a two-out RBI single to left field.

The Seminoles finally were able to get to Virginia Tech starter Mikaela Aiken in the top of the sixth inning as Ellie Cooper tied the game at 1-1 on a bunt single that slipped by Aiken in the circle, allowing Bella D’Errico to score. Victoria Daddis came to the plate next and ripped the first pitch of her at-bat into the left field corner for a two-run double to give Florida State a 3-1 lead. Maddie O’Brien drew her a bases-loaded walk, her second of the game and NCAA-leading 44th of the season, to bring in another run and make it 4-1 Seminoles.

Lacey Waldrop (17-3) earned the complete-game victory, scattering five hits and allowing two runs, one earned with two walks and two strikeouts.

VT’s Aiken (5-1) took the loss after giving up four runs, two earned in 5.0 innings with six walks and one strikeout. Tyler pitched the final 2.0 innings of the game and surrendered three hits and one run with one walk and two strikeouts.

The win gave the Seminoles the series sweep of the Hokies. Florida State has swept 13 of its past 17 conference opponents dating back to April 6, 2013.
